ASKIN Family HistoryThis most interesting surname is of Old Scandinavian (Norse) origin, and is a Norman form of the Old Norse personal name "Asketill", which is composed of the Scandinavian elements "oss, ass", god, and "ketill", sacrificial cauldron. It was a popular male personal name before the Norman Conquest of 1066, having been introduced by Viking invaders in earlier times, and is found in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Aschil". Asketimus filius Od was recorded in the "Documents illustrative of the Social and Economic History of the Danelaw", in 1163, and Robertus filius Astin was mentioned in 1219 in the Assize Court Rolls of Yorkshire.
